Very nice bike.

Keep one gold spacer under the stem. Matches the post clamp for a horizontal pinstripe of gold under the black and the one spacer will have a thinner look to match the grip clamp end ring.

Visual balance.

Spins look ace. Now tyres with a thin amberwall to match the gold ring and a bit of red, pinstripe or branding, to match the decals would finish off the visual feast a treat I'd say.

so lovely with spins :P

would like to have myself a pair for one of my ano 94 zaskars.

prices are always high and rims are often trashed :cry:

nice zaskar, keep the riser if you want to do trickstuff or jumps with it.

flatbars looked better on the older all terra ones imo but on the newer fat downtube models a riser is ok!

Cut about 25mm off the steerer, now using a 20mm spacer on its own, might go lower if my back can take it.

Spin decals put on


The sky is blue and the Sun is shining, Spring is fast approaching 8)
